Javadekar ensures faster environmental clearance

By

first_imgNew Delhi: The process of granting environmental clearances has become faster as the government has reduced the number of days taken to complete the procedure from 640 to 108, Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar said on Friday.Speaking at the national council meeting of the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) here, he also promised to further bring down the time taken to grant clearances to a period of two to three months. “Earlier, the environment ministry was addressed as roadblock ministry or tax ministry. There was an atmosphere that there will be no progress of the country. But we showed that environment protection and growth can go together,” Javadekar said while addressing over 100 industrialists at the meeting.

When I was environment minister for two years, I brought it down to 180 days and now, when I took review, it has come down to 108 days. I promise you that in the coming days we will do our best to bring it down to three or two months,” the minister said. Javadekar said growth and environment protection are possible together and asked for support and suggestions from industrialists.

Environment protection is important but the country’s progress is also important. I believe growth and environment protection both are possible together. That’s what we are pledging. We’ll do it and your (CII) suggestions are welcome,” he said. Javadekar assured to make the environment clearance process not only faster but also transparent to ensure progress. “I can promise you that we not only want to reduce the days of processing the applications but make processes more transparent, taking care of environment and also ensuring progress. I want your suggestions on it on minister.efcc@gov.in. Suggestions are welcome,” he told the CII members. Javadekar was open to the suggestion made by a CII member to make a council, on the line of the GST council, to facilitate faster environmental clearances. The Union minister stressed on the need to invest more in innovation to change the economy for the better. He sought the CII’s participation in the conference of parties on climate change, which is scheduled to be held in December, to help the government shape its strategy in international lobbying. “I want to make two specific requests to you that CII or any business organisation should help the government in lobbying at the international forum more actively because in the Paris agreement I have seen how Japanese, Chinese businesses shape government opinions and strategy, and do lobbying at the international forum. “You have to participate. Now, the Paris agreement is ratified. America is out of it. We don’t know their future. In COP 25 in Chile this December, I want your active collaboration where you can give inputs and argue as well,” he said. Stressing on the need to innovate, Javadekar said industries and exports will not grow unless there is ownership of innovation in India. “Our industries won’t grow and exports will not rise till we innovate. We lack in innovation…,” he said.last_img read more

Russian antidoping chief attacks his own athletics federation

By

first_imgParis: Russia’s anti-doping agency chief on Wednesday launched a scathing attack on Russian athletics bosses ahead of this month’s world championships in Doha, accusing them of obstructing testing. “I’m calling on all the federation’s directors to resign,” RUSADA director general Yuri Ganus told France’s L’Equipe sports daily. Russia was barred from international competition in 2015 over a vast state-run doping conspiracy. While Russia’s anti-doping agency RUSADA is now under new leadership, Ganus claims that the old guard at the country’s athletics federation (RUSAF) is hindering progress in cleaning up the sport. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh”We (RUSADA) are cooperating with the IAAF, we are conducting investigations,” he told L’Equipe. “The scale of the backlog is crazy. It’s the problem of the system, because there is proof of intervention from a higher body. “There are those who are against my work, for example the Sports Minister (Pavel Kolobkov) has defended and continues to support (RUSAF chief Dmitry) Shlyakhtin at the head of the athletics’ federation.” Since the initial ban, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) has rejected Russia’s efforts to be reinstated no fewer than 11 times. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterThe IAAF will consider the Russian federation’s latest request when its top officials meet in Doha on Monday. Despite the ban, athletes subsequently deemed clean have been allowed to compete as neutrals and if Russia is rejected for a 12th time then — just as at the London 2017 world championships — Russian athletes who have met the criteria will be allowed to take part as so-called Authorised Neutral Athletes. In June RUSAF was rocked by fresh allegations, with reports that Russian coaches suspended for involvement in doping were continuing to train athletes. British newspaper The Sunday Times ran a story alleging that RUSAF officials had fabricated documents to show that Danil Lysenko, the 2017 world silver high jump medallist, was too ill to provide his whereabouts after failing to make himself available for out-of-competition drug testing. Ganus said: “As long as we’re not honest with ourselves, the international community cannot lift the ban on Russia. “We will end this disaster only when we admit that punishment is inevitable and that nobody can escape their responsibilities.”last_img read more

Its fishy business

By

first_imgHow often should I change water in the aquarium? Most aquariums should be cleaned every two weeks on average. It is easier to combine cleaning and water changes by using a gravel siphon, as this also removes any dirt and waste from the bottom of the tank. Can I add tap water directly to my aquarium? Tap water contains chlorine and chloramines, which are added to our water supply to act as a disinfectants. They are very effective at keeping the water clean for human consumption but unfortunately fish cannot tolerate chlorine or chloramines. You need to add a dechlorinator to the water before adding it to your aquarium. Also Read – Feel what you fear What is a biological filter and what does it do? The biochemical function of the aquarium filter is to remove harmful substances from the water by biochemical reaction. This means that bacteria within the filter can alter a substance (for example, ammonia) to turn it into something else. Nitrifying bacteria is responsible for removing dangerous substances called ammonia and nitrite from the water. They do this by using a small amount of oxygen to change the chemical composition of the toxic substances, and in doing so, turn them into nitrate. Nitrate is relatively harmless to fish and can be easily removed through water changes and by live plants, which use it as a food source. Also Read – HomecomingOnce a filter has been established in a tank for several weeks, it becomes ‘mature’, meaning that there is enough bacteria in the filter to cope with the amount of waste produced by fish. If a tank is overcrowded, then problems will continue to occur because the filter will not be able to cope with the large amount of waste. In new tanks, the filter is not mature, meaning that it has not built up any bacteria. New tanks should be ‘cycled’, without any fish in for at least two weeks before adding fish. When adding fish, it is best to add a few at a time to allow the filter to mature gradually, otherwise the amount of waste will overwhelm the filter and as a result fish may die from ammonia or nitrite poisoning. What causes cloudy water? Cloudiness is usually caused by a bacterial bloom. Cloudiness is common in new aquariums. If your water is cloudy, then you should increase the aeration and make sure that the filter is working correctly. Siphon the gravel and change a small amount of the water (20 per cent) regularly until it goes away. Also, be sure to test the water to make sure there is not an underlying problem. Sometimes cloudiness can be caused by over feeding or by failing to remove any uneaten food. How do I know if any fish in my aquarium is unwell? Abnormalities on the fish’s body and its behaviour are clues to know whether the fish is unwell or not . Fish are usually active; therefore, behaviour such as floating, sinking, and hiding are often signs of a sick fish. Another unusual behaviour is scratching against objects in the tank due to skin infections (parasite invasions). Lesions, spots, and puffiness on the fish’s body point out parasitical infections or chemical irritation. Also, if your fish is having trouble breathing, it will be gasping for air at the top of the tank, signaling unbalanced oxygen levels in the water.

first_imgLima: Peru’s president dissolved parliament and called for fresh elections Monday, prompting a vote by lawmakers to suspend him, deepening a long-running institutional crisis. The announcement by President Martin Vizcarra came after he warned Congress he would dissolve the body if it continued to block a raft of anti-corruption reforms and changes to the way judges are appointed to the country’s Supreme Court. Shortly after his televised statement, Congress voted to suspend Vizcarra for one year on the grounds of “moral incapacity” and nominated Vice President Mercedes Araoz as acting head of state.

Islamabad A highlevel Taliban delegation on Thur

By

first_imgIslamabad: A high-level Taliban delegation on Thursday met Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi as part of a push to revive the Afghan peace process stalled after US President Donald Trump abruptly declared the talks with the rebel group “dead”. The Taliban delegation led by Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar arrived in Islamabad on Wednesday night. The issue of Afghan peace talks and regional situation were discussed during their meeting Qureshi, a Foreign Office official said. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: Report Qureshi told the delegation that war was not a solution of the ongoing unrest in Afghanistan. The delegation is also expected to meet American officials in Islamabad. Taliban’s Pakistan visit is the fourth leg of a tour that included Russia, China and Iran. The Foreign Office announced on Wednesday that Afghan delegation was visiting on the invitation of Pakistan to review the progress made so far under the stalled US-Taliban peace talks. Also Read – Iraq military admits ‘excessive force’ used in deadly protests US special envoy to Afghanistan Zalmay Khalilzad is also in Pakistan to discuss revival of the peace talks. He may also meet the Taliban delegation. Khalilzad’s comes days after Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to the US where he met Trump and among other issues discussed the revival of negotiations to bring peace in Afghanistan. Since his appointment in September last year, Afghanistan-born Khalilzad has met with all sides in an attempt to end America’s longest war in which the US has lost over 2,400 soldiers in more than 17 years. The US and the Taliban had agreed on draft peace plan, but the process was suspend by President Trump following killing of an American soldier in Kabul last month in a suicide attack claimed by the Taliban. Trump stunned the world when he suddenly declared that the Afghan peace talks with the Taliban were “dead”. He cancelled a secret meeting with the Taliban and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani at Camp David near Washington after the Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack in Kabul, in which an American soldier was among the dead. The Taliban control nearly half of Afghanistan, and are more powerful now than they were at any time since the 2001 US-led invasion after the 9/11 terror attacks. The US has continued to push for a ceasefire in the war-torn country and the opening of negotiations between the Taliban and the Kabul government. The Taliban, however, have repeatedly refused to meet with officials of the Afghan government, whom they dismiss as “puppets”. The US has long considered Pakistani cooperation crucial to efforts to end the war in Afghanistan.last_img read more

Oil regime A desperate US

By

first_imgThe US response to the Mideast crisis is not about protecting the world’s oil supply. It is to tighten control of the world’s oil supply, to protect profits for the US oil monopolies, and to further control by US global financial, military, and other corporations. This comes at the expense of the world’s working people, including those of the United States; it also comes at the expense of humanity’s future. On September 14, drone and missile strikes knocked out major oil processing facilities in Saudi Arabia. The Houthi rebels in Yemen claimed responsibility. Also Read – Hijacking Bapu’s legacyPresident Donald Trump, however, immediately blamed Iran, and got US intelligence and some European allies to go along. Most of the mainstream media have uncritically repeated those claims, rarely pointing to the US record of selecting and even manufacturing evidence to fit desired policy goals. Healthy scepticism is called for. We should ask, what are the interests of the US military, the administration, the foreign policy establishment, and the corporations they represent? Also Read – The future is here!The easy answer is OIL! That is the answer to almost every question in Mid-East policy. But that answer begs for more probing. The September 14 attack knocked out production of 5.7 million barrels per day—about 5 per cent of the total world supply. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted in response that this was an “unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply”. He is implying that the global oil supply is so critical that anyone or any country that reduces the global oil supply is an international outlaw and deserves punishment. Let’s take Pompeo at his word. In the past decade, who has been most responsible for reducing the global supply of oil? That would be the United States of America. US economic and political warfare against Venezuela has reduced that country’s exports by well over a million barrels per day, with the biggest drop in the past year as Trump tightened the noose around that country. And since Trump broke the nuclear deal with Iran (the JCPA – Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), he has effectively cut that country’s exports by over 2 million barrels per day, down to almost nothing. Earlier the US action helped knock out about a million barrels per day from Libya, although about 3/4 of that has recovered. And, of course, the Trump administration’s actions to increase oil consumption in the US, including gutting EPA standards and promoting less efficient cars, leaving less available for the global supply. So, if the world, and particularly the American people, are to be stirred up over a threat to the global energy supply, it seems we have to look toward the culprits in Washington first. But US policy is not about guaranteeing that the world has access to the oil it needs. The US policy is about controlling the world’s oil supply and manipulating the price. Not for the benefit of you and me, but on behalf of the US oil monopolies and US global corporations. Let’s look at the price. Over the past decade, world oil prices have fluctuated greatly. A barrel of oil cost above $105 from 2011-2014 but dropped below $40 by early 2016. It has been between $53 and $58 for the last four months. But while the price of oil fluctuates widely, the cost of production at a given location is steady. If it costs $30 last week for an oil company to pump and transport a barrel of oil from a well in West Texas, it will cost $30 this week. But if the market price for that oil goes from $55 to $65, the company’s profit goes up from $25 to $35 – a 40 per cent increase! So, US oil companies have a direct interest, not in cheap oil, but in expensive oil. When the Iraq war and Mideast turmoil sent the price of oil over $100, it was great for US oil companies. It was also great for the Saudi royal family. And it was great for the arms merchants and other US companies whose sales to the cash-rich Saudis exploded. It was too much of a good thing. With the price of oil over $100 per barrel at the beginning of this decade and the emergence of new fracking and shale extraction technologies, oil production boomed here, making the US the world’s leading oil producer. Much of this new production was financed with high levels of debt. To repay the debt, companies need to get a high price for their oil. And the best way to do that is to cut production – preferably from countries that the US ruling circles don’t like. But US oil policy is not only about restricting supply to raise prices. It is also, even primarily, about control. With control of the world trade in oil, the US can exact tribute from most oil-producing countries. This can take the form of direct ownership of their oil, or profits from lucrative contracts for technology, management, financing, shipping, etc. In addition, US companies profit from supplying for military equipment and mercenaries to keep the regime in power and for luxury goods for the ruling elite. Since World War II, oil has been one of the main levers of US foreign policy – not in the interests of the people of this country, but for the profits of the transnational companies and Wall Street investors. Using the September 14 attack in Saudi Arabia as an excuse to further heighten tensions with Iran has no benefit for working people in the US and runs the risk of war even more damaging and destabilising than the Iraq invasion of 2003. Only Wall Street vultures and arms dealers might benefit. The main goal of US policy is to give US oil companies effective control of (and profit from) global oil production. And while the oil companies are able to profit from sanctions and other disruptions by raising prices, their main strategy has been maintaining their power by increasing the world’s dependence on their product – oil. It is necessary for every oil-producing country, including Venezuela, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Russia, and the US, to rapidly transition to a non-oil economy. This will be difficult in any case and will require high levels of international cooperation. But it will be impossible as long as the likes of Exxon control the world’s oil, and US policy is dictated by Exxon’s profits, rather than the interests of the people and the planet.
